Tinker Air Force Base, Oklahoma City Okla., -- An unexpected snowstorm blew in for the second time in less than a week, making outside work conditions around the 507th Air Refueling Wing very difficult.
The whiteout conditions combined with the frigid temperatures brought work to a halt on the flight line as workers are not able to get outside to take care of daily tasks.
After enduring months of drought conditions, 2012 is ending on a wet, snowy and icy note. Just a few days earlier another storm hit the area with snow and icy conditions causing similar work conditions and according to weather forecasters, another larger storm is headed this way.
Not all is lost however as most members who need to work outside take this opportunity to catch up on training and paperwork, keeping a watchful eye on the forecast so they can get back to their normal daily tasks.
